The Key to Happiness
What is the difference between HAPPY people and UNHAPPY people? Do happy people make more money? Are happy people thinner - or smarter? The big difference between happy people and unhappy people is...
- HAPPY people celebrate what they have.
- UNHAPPY people focus on what’s missing.
You say, “So do happy people wake up every morning and count their blessings?” Lots do!
Let’s say that you have:
- ungrateful children
- colleagues who do less than they could
- a husband who does less than he should
- neighbors who play loud music at 3am
You say, “How can I be happy?” It’s in the questions you ask yourself, for example:
- What do I LIKE about my neighbors?
- What do I LIKE about my job?
- What do I LIKE about my husband?
- What is one GOOD THING that happened today?
We FIND in life what we LOOK for. Happiness is really a choice – and it becomes a habit.

This is it:
It went viral – 3.6 million views and 42,000 shares. You never know when a simple idea will connect with people! Join me on Facebook! Andrew Matthews – Author.
